Doubtful Memory: Hong Kong artist and designer Chung Ka-chun is fascinated by the unpleasant: back alleys, blemishes, stains, Hong Kong’s sticky air. Drawing inspiration from these everyday textures, Chung is presenting his new mixed-materials works in “Doubtful Memory” at the Fringe Club. The series of paintings makes use of mixed materials to mimic everyday textures such as molds, cracks, and folds to explore the fragility of memory. In his work, Chung recreates peeling wallpapers and wet towels that refuse to dry.
His work represents his confused daily cognition, but also his desire to capture these everyday objects in a city that changes at such a fast pace. Some of the artwork will also be exhibited in roads and streets in Hong Kong, such as back alleys and public toilets.
